Peplum Stripes

IMG_20160815_124018Top: Nordstrom
I finally received the hottest item from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – the highly coveted Ruffle Hem peplum blouse by BP!  It seems like every single blogger I follow was going crazy over this top, and for good reason – it really is as cute in person as it was all over Instagram!

I originally ordered this top on day two of the early access, and after placing my order and thinking I’m in the clear, I got the notice that it was sold out 😦  I’ve been kind of obsessively stalking and have seen it restocked a couple of times!  I finally saw it in a size that would work, and snapped it up!  If you’re still wanting this top and missed out getting yours during the #nsale, keep checking back at the link above – I’ve seen it restocked at least 3 times now, but when it is, it sells out fast!
A note on the sizing: I ordered a couple other pieces by BP from the Nsale, and sadly had to send them back due to them being a bit more oversized than I liked.  I do think this brand runs generous with their sizing, so I actually got this top in an XXS.  I think the length in the front is a tad bit shorter than I would typically wear, but the high/low hemline does make up for it, and the fit overall is good.  I think an XS would have been a bit too overwhelming on my 5’2″ frame.
Even though I couldn’t snag it at the anniversary sale price, I still think the quality and style of the top is a good value at full price.  I can see this being a piece that transcends seasons; it’s lightweight enough to wear during the Summer in the office, and can be layered under a jacket or cardigan for when temps take a dip.  And of course, I’m rocking my Orange, White and Green beads in honor of India’s Independence Day!  Many of my dear friends are from India, and today, I am celebrating alongside them!
Back to Monday here, but celebrations & new tops always make the day go by easier!
